Oreochromis Mossambicus

Mozambique Tilapia

The Mozambique Tilapia is laterally compressed, and has a deep body with long dorsal fins. The front part of the dorsal fin is the most inconvenient to handle because it has spines on it. Looking at the coloration and patterns of the Mozambique tilapia specifically, it has weak banding (Popma, 1999). The main coloration is yellow, though coloration is unreliable due to the many different colors of cichlid fish and the many different feeding strategies (Popma, 1999).
